Hi all! Xan here! It's my first time ever getting featured so I'm kinda freaking out. Since a lot of you have been asking me on how I make my simple covers so I decided to create my post for today on how to make a simple cover for your stories because I'm that generous.
The cover I'll be explaining and it's procedures is the image below:
It looks very simple and trust me, it's not that hard to make a simple cover. It's honestly text slapped with a simple font.
I created this cover using Photoshop but it's not necessary for you to have it to make glorious covers. You can either use Pixlr or Canvas. They're really good editing softwares/apps.
Now the next step is where we all struggle;
Where do I get pictures/images from?
There's alot of resources out there like DevaintArt or Unsplash but Pinterest is my baby. I'm on Pinterest 24/7 and it's my addiction right now lmao but anyway, you need to search for a really good image.
I use simple keywords like 'blood, hand/lips, girl crying, etc.' for my covers and I'm sure you can do the same for yours.
Once you've found the perfect image, you need to search a good font but the font I used for the cover above is a font called 'Times New Roman' that's already available on all editing softwares I believe so no hard work is required.
Times New Roman font honestly goes with anything. If you aren't sure what font to use, use this.
Here's some font I can recommend for your graphics;
- Times New Roman
- Timeless [use this all the time]
- Keep Calm
- Sanies Script
- And the list goes on.
You can get resources from;
- Google [duh]
- Flickr, etc.
Once you've found your font, please do remember to place it correctly on the cover[ex; at the center] and not out of it or somewhere it's not visible at all.
You then can pretty much change the colour and do some retouch for a better result and that's it. Yup. That's all from me and I hope this was somehow was helpful to any of you and if not, well then I just wasted an hour of my life for nothing.
This was short but was it worth my time? Yes it was and thanks to Kelly for featuring my pathic bottom! I love you right now!
I almost forgot to mention. I'll be giving three stock depositphotos, two PSD colourings and a recreate of your cover of your choice from me to three lucky winners! My giveaway is open internationally!
Thanks. Stay awesome folks!
